New filter has approx 17k and I will wait for it to show evidence of plugging before I swap it out.

Thanks for posting up the pic. Anybody reading have thoughts about the bypass filter seemingly not picking much of anything up? I'm not knocking the bypass setups, but I would like to hear feedback from the more "experienced" minds that wander these halls and argue among each other

I added a bypass at around 100,000 miles, at that point entirely on conventional silicate containing coolant. My first filter completely plugged in about 2000 miles to the point that it wasn't even warm after a half hour drive. Second filter made it about 6000. Since then (the last 10 years) I have changed them about every year to year and a half and haven't experienced another plugged filter. I don't have any concerns about the effectiveness of a bypass system removing solids.

great article on water pump and coolant info.

I understand from past owner the water pump was replaced at 75K. Truck now has 168K so wondering what is normal life of these pumps. Not sure type of replacement pump it look like the OEM style with main bottom coming off right lower side of pump.

It does not appears to be leaking at this point.

It appears to have the gold coolant installed. So will most likely go back with that when changing out pump.. Was thinking about the cast iron IH pump and changing out O rings in pump as shown with better type rings.

What is recommend coolant the motorcraft or something else.

is this correct stuff
Amazon.com: Genuine Ford Fluid VC-7-B Gold Concentrated Antifreeze/Coolant - 1 Gallon: Automotive Amazon.com: Genuine Ford Fluid VC-7-B Gold Concentrated Antifreeze/Coolant - 1 Gallon: Automotive

how many gallons needed to do a good flush and replace. Was just going to drain coolant and refill with regular water from city tap run till hot with heater on and drain fluid, fill and flush again, then do pump replace and new coolant.

If you have the Motorcraft Gold coolant already, I'd assume your 7.3 is a L99 or newer, yes?

If yes, I'd suggest a heavy duty ELC coolant meeting Cat EC-1 spec, like Chevron Delo HD ELC.
